Domain and Hosting

Aside from the actual design of the website, there are 2 other pieces in building a site you’ll need to be aware of- Hosting & Domain.

Domain Name

A domain name is a unique name that identifies a website. For example, the domain name of McWilliams Media is “mcwilliamsmedia.com.” Each website has a domain name that serves as an address, which is used to access the website.

Domain names are relatively cheap to register, though they must be renewed every year or every few years. The good news is that anyone can register a domain name, so you can purchase a unique domain name for your blog or website. The bad news is that nearly all domain names with common words have already been registered. Therefore, if you want to register a custom domain name, you may need to think of a creative variation. Once you decide on a domain name and register it, the name is yours until you stop renewing it. When the renewal period expires, the domain name becomes available for others to purchase.
